Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, September 26

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 Mile, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

4 Madam Aamoura – Exits the hardest race, by far, of any filly in the field; oddly this is her first start over dirt.

5 Redshirt – Showed improvement in her second career start; she’s bred to route and it was proven in her last start.

Long Shot – 6 Here Comes Chloe

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Senator Bob – I like horses that won last out while running a lower Beyer; tells me the horse may have won with something left.

3 Peacenik – Sliding down the claiming ladder this this lower level; he has won 4-of-9 starts at Santa Anita.

Long Shot – 2 Gal Has to Like It

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

6 Flat Footed Mama – Bob Baffert babies typically improve with experience; expect this one to move forward too.

9 Tatum’s Gold – Has teased and nibbled in her four career starts; they tried blinkers on in the last two starts to no avail.

Long Shot – 8 Filly On Fire

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $58,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Intoxicating Move – Sharp win in last, second start off the claim by Philip D’Amato; no question she likes the hillside turf course.

1 Zanbo – Has regressed in her last three starts; like the cutback in distance where she’ll sit back and make one run in the stretch.

Long Shot – 10 Al Freej

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Expo and Fig – Could this complete a Philip D’Amato daily double; sliding down to the bottom maiden claiming rung.

13 Golden Chalice – Races tonight as a first time gelding; his best career start came at Santa Anita in May.

Long Shot – 6 Mrs. Lewis C

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Betty Bing Bing – Her last, and only, win came three races ago at Santa Anita; this is the cheapest price tag she has ever run for.

8 Ava’s Ballet – Facing winners for the first time is a steep class rise; Blake Heap spots her well to have a fighting chance.

Long Shot – 10 Bird In Love

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Mambo Man – Big class drop offers this guy a huge chance; has to run back to his better speed figures.

8 Jomelo – Philip D’Amato has proven to be a more than capable replacement for Mike Mitchell; this one looks ready to wake up.

Long Shot – 7 Shun

Race 8 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $60,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

4 Indianapolis – I’ll bet some people had KY Derby Future book bets on this colt; returns from a 9-month hiatus.

9 Street Icon – Another returning off a 9-month hiatus; this one has potential too for the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer.

Long Shot – 7 My Slew

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), $100,000 Eddie D, 3-year-olds and up

6 Unbridled’s Note – Lot of layoff horses returning on today’s card; this one will stretch his legs over a course that he loves.

8 Ambitious Brew – This guy last ran in February; is 3-for-3 down the hillside turf course, plus parking lot posts are better.

Long Shot – 3 Lil Bit O’Fun

Best Bet – 1 Expo and Fig (race 5)

Del Mar Wednesday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 20/4/$27.80; Long Shots, 10/1/$12.40; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.20
